A country drive revisited
Some of you may remember the post I wrote on Monday about a drive in the country. And if you don't, that's okay, it wasn't that memorable! This photo was taken on that drive. I had just topped a little hill and saw a huge nest in the big oak tree and the Big Bird that was in the nest took off before I could stop and get my camera ready. I don't think it was a bald eagle, but it was large whatever it was!
Can you tell how large the nest is? I zoomed in for a better look. It's the largest nest I've seen that wasn't a squirrel's nest. I want to go back soon and see if I can get a photo of the elusive Big Bird. Have I ever said that I love simple things? Birdwatching is one of those simple things.
When I got home, I checked the bird feeders and saw a Downy Woodpecker feeding and snapped him. He's not Big Bird, but I think he's cute.

I have a question. Does anyone know why the background color looks so much different on my blog on the laptop as compared to the desktop computer? I chose the color on my desktop, what I thought was a nice light yellow. But, when I work on my laptop, the color looks totally different. I haven't really noticed this with any other colors that I've used. Any ideas?
Until next time...
